A Segal Centre (Montreal, QC) Production. Developed with support from the National Arts Centre’s National Creation Fund.
It’s 1940s Quebec – Habs country – and young Roch proudly wears his #9 hockey sweater day and night, until it is too small and worn to last another season. But a new sweater, sent by Mr. Eaton himself, inadvertently puts young Roch in enemy colours, fighting on and off the ice to maintain his sense of belonging.
Roch Carrier’s timeless tale has charmed generations of children and adults with its themes of loyalty, acceptance and hockey glory. Standing on the shoulders of that most Canadian of stories, The Hockey Sweater: A Musical is a magical and energetic addition to the growing canon of Canadian musical theatre.
